    Nice pool, beautiful view. The people who staffed it were really nice.

    The hotel is undergoing a remodel. The first room we were given was uninhabitable. It smelled so toxic that we all felt nauseated within a few minutes and I got a headache. The front desk said no one had slept in it yet. So we moved to a room that had been remodeled a month prior. It still smelled really toxic. We ordered room service and the food was terrible. The Caesar Salad was literally the worst salad we've ever had. Completely inedible. The staff told us that meters needed to be plugged starting at 7am on a Sunday and to use the hotel's lot for $25. That wasn't true. We found on street parking and didn't need to plug a meter - within four blocks of the hotel. We've stayed there before and enjoyed it, so this was all a surprise.

    Aquarius restaurant food is not bad, even if it is too expensive and the restaurant is freezing cold. Views are nice, except for the garbage bags.

    Worst-run hotel I have ever stayed at. They lost my reservation, which had been made months before (they also lost the reservation for one of my associates, made at the same time). Because of their remodel, they were moving the lobby to another location, so they had only one terminal. They did not expedite my check-in, but rather took care of other people while I waited and waited. Finally, in my room, my view was marred by a guy cleaning up the patio. He decided to set a spell on my veranda and make a phone call, even though I clearly was in the room. He left a disgusting bag of trash to mar my view. The room was freezing, but no thermostat or remote in sight. The front desk told me to look in the drawer, because upper management insists on hiding the remotes. I know that several other guests complained about the same thing. I guess they hope their guests will put up with the freezing cold. The typical "information binder" was empty, so I couldn't look for any information or a hotel map. I did mention this to the front desk, but it wasn't corrected the next day. Or the next. Finally settling in and warming up, a random maintenance worker barged into my room without knocking. I guess they can't keep track of which rooms are occupied. Met my associates in the Aquarius restaurant, which also was freezing. The wait staff brought a little tiny space heater to try to warm things up. The one star in my rating is because the restaurant food is pretty good (grotesquely overpriced) and the wait staff efficient and friendly. Next day, after a long day of meetings, I returned to my room, only to discover the key no longer worked. So I had to find the new lobby, for which there were no signs, and get a new key. This happened to several other guests as well. Finally back in my room, there was a nauseating chemical smell. I called the front desk to complain. They sent a maintenance guy, who (without any evidence) determined it was the carpet off-gassing. As if that was OK. I doubt it's true, because I smelled the odor again during the night -- maybe they use a noxious chemical to clean their sheets? In any case, it's apparently not fatal in small doses, but I would expect an expensive hotel to take more care in providing an odor-free environment for its guests. I opened the patio door to clear the air. I discovered that the door (which I had carefully locked in the morning) had been left COMPLETELY unlocked. The room was on the pool level, and it would have been easy for anybody to come in and rob the place. Again, the front desk was not alarmed by this unacceptable breach of security. After a nice walk on the wharf, I came back to the lovely view of another disgusting bag of garbage left on my patio. Summary: staff smiles, but doesn't do anything to fix the egregious mistakes in hotel service. The management clearly believes that a good hotel means a nice view and colorful curtains. Maybe they're better when they're not renovating, but I won't risk trying the place again. If they can't provide even a minimum level of good service, they're not worth it.

    From the valet service with luggage assistance and parking, this was a superior hotel. The staff was knowledgeable and friendly. The ocean and beach view from the room was lovely, the rooms clean and bright, with the decor giving them a spa feel. The beds were comfortable and the shower had plenty of water pressure. Although we didn't eat there for every meal, given that there were several excellent restaurants in town, the hotel restaurant was elegant, providing good selection and prices for all meals, breakfast, lunch and dinner, and service was superior. This hotel is luxurious, and providing that one can afford it, I would consider it a destination hotel for Santa Cruz. We will definitely return to the Dream Inn on our next visit!

    Location on the beach.

    Hotel was so noisy, very expensive for thread-bare 60's decor.

    This is a beachfront hotel but access to the beach is only via the swimming pool. I like this hotel mainly for its close proximity to the wharf.

    No bath tub for this kind of room rates.

    We love the staff, they are the most customer service oriented group out there. We enjoyed the Keuring machine and the fact that you offered my Husband's favorite coffee. This was the first time we used the pool and it was incredible, warm, salty "thick" water. Although we did not use them we appreciate hotels that offer all the docking stations and plug ins for the computers. And we love that you offer different kinds of pillows-we wish they were marked somehow so we could see what we liked the best. We love this chain of hotels and especially the Dream Inn, but compared to our previous visit our experience dropped a bit.

    People who work at the hotel should be required to use all of the facilities, the restaurant, pool, etc. It's no fun to ask how's the (insert item here) and being told they hear it's good but they haven't eaten/swam there... Also, I'm not sure if last time we stayed the hotel had just been remodeled, but it's looking kind of dingy which shocked us, the carpet in the lobby needed cleaning, there were scrape marks on the wallcovering in several areas, including our room, & our bed linens did not seem as high quality as before. Something you couldn't help were the people smoking pot on their balcony.

    Loved that every room has a spectacular view of the ocean & the room decor

    Great location & excellent service. I had sent them advance email requesting a higher level room for better view & our request was granted. And a surprise slIce of cheese cake was delivered in our room for our 25 1/2 yrs late wedding anniversary celebration. Thank you so much it made our stay Special. We enjoyed using the pool & jacuzzi in the side note since its summer time & more kids are using pool so it needed extra cleaning so sand won't accumulate other than that a fresh rolled towel on each chair was great. We will definitely stay in this inn again. :-)
